Please find here some pictures from the Ecumenical Service with the Stations of the Cross, which was held on Good Friday in PdC.
We warmly welcome Revd Stan Evans, our new Chaplain, and his wife Rosie to St Laurence. Fr Stan’s first Sunday in charge was on 7th April. Fr Stan has had a long and varied ministry, including responsibilities with the Church of England Children’s Society, as Director of Funding for the Archbishop of York, and as Director of an ecumenical Trust improving resource management in churches throughout the UK and Ireland. Most recently, Fr Stan was priest in charge of the Omey Group of Parishes in Connemara, as well as Provost of Tuam.
The Service for the Institution of Fr Stan was celebrated by the Archdeacon of Gibraltar at 11.30am on Wednesday 10th April in the church of Nuestra Senora del Carmen in Puerto del Carmen. The service was followed by light refreshments. The order is available for download here.
As part of the Church of England Diocese in Europe, in the Canary Islands, our aim is to serve the English speaking residents and visitors to the island of Lanzarote, with regular Sunday services at Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca & Nazaret.
We are a parish with a mission as we seek to further God’s Kingdom on our islands, in fellowship with our sister churches here. We aim to work closely with the other churches, to offer a united and friendly welcome to people from all over the world, and we are blessed to have so many visitors to our worship. This brings to us a wonderful diversity of culture and language in which we rejoice and give thanks to God, for the diversity of His creation. We are blessed too, to have a regular congregation, who support the ministry and mission of the Chaplaincy.
Whether you are a long-term or new resident, a regular visitor, or simply here on holiday, please be assured of a very warm welcome at all our services and events. We love to hear from visitors who have shared worship with us, and do let us know if you are thinking of joining us for worship when you come on holiday to Lanzarote. Our website contains lots of information about us, and whom to contact.
Your prayer for our work is important to us, and if you would like someone added to our Intercession list whilst you are here, please let one of the Ministry Team know.
Our regular services:
Puerto del Carmen, every Sunday, 12.30 pm
Playa Blanca, every Sunday, 5.00 pm
Nazaret, 1st and 3rd Sunday, 10.00 am
